König [King of Boylesque]



Barnaby’s presents  KöNIG — a pageant unlike any other. It takes a flawless physique, impeccable style, witty charms, and jaw-dropping original talent to be crowned the King of Boylesque. This colorful pageant fuses the best in male vaudeville, circus and musical theatre entertainment, all backed by the acclaimed five-piece Dixieland Band, Fromagique. The contest showcases an international selection of eight top neo-burlesque performers competing in four categories (including the vintage swimsuit division, of course) before a celebrity panel of judges. A unique San Francisco evening of contemporary competitive cabaret— Hosted by eccentric vagabond Maximus Barnaby and opera diva Truly Scrumptious.
